Timeline of David Mackenzie


In 2018 Mackenzie’s tenth feature, Outlaw King starring Chris Pine, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Florence Pugh and Billy Howle, was released on Netflix. The film tells the true David and Goliath story of Scottish king Robert the Bruce as he fights to repel the occupying English army. The film is produced by Gillian Berrie and Sigma Films.


Mackenzie returned to the States to make Hell or High Water (2016), starring Chris Pine, Jeff Bridges and Ben Foster. The film follows two brothers (Pine and Foster) as they go on a bank robbing spree across Texas, whilst being pursued by a Texas Ranger (Bridges) and his partner (Gil Birmingham). The film premiered in the 2016 Cannes Un Certain Regard competition, and was met with critical acclaim internationally. It was the highest grossing independent film of 2016 and its achievements have been recognised with four Academy Award nominations – including Best Picture – and several Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations.

In late 2016, Mackenzie directed a TV pilot called Damnation for Universal Cable Productions and the USA Network. Described as an epic saga of the secret history of the 1930s American heartland, it chronicles the mythic conflict and bloody struggle between big money and the downtrodden, God and greed, charlatans and prophets. Damnation was picked up to series by the USA Network in May 2017 and will be released by Netflix outside of the USA.


His father was Royal Navy Rear Admiral John Mackenzie, and his mother was Ursula Balfour. Both his parents died in 2015.


Mackenzie’s next film was the prison drama Starred Up (2013). It features Jack O’Connell as a young offender who is moved into an adult prison where his estranged and incarcerated father resides. O’Connell stars alongside Ben Mendelsohn and Rupert Friend. The film is based on the writer Jonathan Asser’s experiences as a voluntary therapist in HM Prison Wandsworth. It premiered at Telluride 2013 and went on to win numerous awards, including the BAFTA Scotland 2014 Best Film and Best Director Awards, get nominated for seven BIFAs and holds a remarkable 99% Rotten Tomatoes score.

The film premiered at Sundance Film Festival in 2011 and picked up awards at film festivals around the world including Edinburgh, Bratislava and Philadelphia International Film Festivals.

After Perfect Sense, Mackenzie directed the comedy musical You Instead (2011) [released as Tonight You’re Mine in the United States].

It was filmed over five days at the Scottish music festival T in the Park in 2010. The cast and crew had to adopt a kind of guerrilla filmmaking approach to shoot amidst the chaos of a music festival. It premiered at both T in the Park in 2011 and Austin based music and film festival SXSW.


In 2009 he directed the sex satire Spread, which marked Mackenzie’s first feature in the USA. The film follows Ashton Kutcher’s LA gigolo as he begins living with a rich older client played by Anne Heche. Spread had its premiere at Sundance.


Next, Mackenzie directed the highly regarded Hallam Foe, starring Jamie Bell and Sophia Myles. The film is adapted from the book by Peter Jinks and follows the voyeuristic title character as he runs away to Edinburgh and becomes transfixed by a beautiful woman who looks uncannily like his late mother.
